Woman's Auxiliary Prayers 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we 
pray Thee, our work for the extension of Thy 
Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the 
precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that 
we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and 
give liberally to make Him known to all nations 
as their Savior and their King: through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord.. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the 
world's end, and who didst send Thy blessed 
vSon^torre^eBmoSlX^msEM^id: Help us, we 
pray Thee, so to reveal Thy love in prayer 
and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit 
all nations and peoples may be baptized into 
one body, even as all are redeemed by one 
Savior; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We who live so much by abbreviations and nick- 
names are often unaware of the true meaning and 
scope of organizations to which we belong, and for 
which we work. One instance of this is* I'm sure, 
the Woman's Auxiliary. Tie all think of it as "the 
strong right arm" of the local Church, and it is 
surely that. Our branch Yfas operating before our 
Mission was formerly established , and it has never 
failed to meet an$ pressing demand laid upon it. 

However the full title is The Woman 1 s Auxiliary 
To The National Gouncil. This means that the wom- 
en of the Episcopal Church plan and execute their 
unique contribution to the work of the Church in 
our country and everywhere else that the Church 
ministers to bodies and souls. Our women do not 
neglect their local congregations any more than 
they do their homes and families. But they have 
long ago shown that they are not going » to stay 
in the kitchen". 

Please keep that consciousness in all you do. 
The " Woman ! s touch " is needed for creative 
Christian solutions to ignorance, bitterness and 
need throughout the world. Our local plans in 
Christian Education and Christian Social Relat- 
ions are not in true focus if they become blurred 
upon enlargement to international proportions. 
Every investment in local property must stand up 
to the test of " producer 1 s goods " for the 
Kingdom of God. 

Thank you for all your consideration and 
cooperation during the last three years. Hay 
God bless you and your work in the years to

The work of the Auxiliary is. 'more effective if 
everyone understands the workings of its^ component 
parts. The following list presents the* ? purposes 
of its basic committees: 

Christian Education - to plan for each meeting a 
program on some aspect of the work of the Church 
that education may produce constructive action; 

Christian Social Relations - to extend the help- 
ing hand of the Church in cooperation with other 
denominations j agencies, and peoples toward a com- 
mon goal of World Citizenship in a World Democracy, 

Church Periodicals Club - to constantly renew 
and enrich our knowledge on a national and 
international scope by providing Current 
Resource Material, and to distribute mat- 
erial to other groups as well$ 

Missions - to create in an ©pen field for 
looking , an awareness, and to encourage our 
prayers and consideration and to learn 
through correspondence needs that we may help 

Supply - to aid the National Council by 
sending boxes of clothing and other supplies 
to our home and foreign Missions and other 
needy groups; 

United Thank Offering - to express our thank- 
fulness aby tokens which ultimately augment 
the good work of Yfomen in our Mission Fields; 

College and Personel - to establish a closer 
tie with our young people and to help make 
the Church a vital part, in their lives, be- 
ing ever mindful of the ever-growing needs 
for qualified men to enter the Ministry, and 
women for many allied fields. 

Cur other committees are for our own 
operation, that wo may befriend strangers 
and children, enjoy Christian fellowship 
among ourselves, and function on a level 
of benefit for others. " The light that 
shines farthest, shines brightest at home "•

Auxuliary Hymn 
No. U08 

Take my life, and let it be 
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee; 
Take my moments and my days, 
Let them flow in ceaseless praise 

Take my hands, and let them move 
At the impulse of Thy love; 
Take my feet and let them be 
Swift and beautiful for Thee. 

Take my voice, and let me sing 
Always, only for my King; 
Take my intellect, and use 
Every power as Thou shalt choose. 

Take my will, and make it thine; 
It shall be no longer mine. 
Take myself, and I will be 
Ever, only, all for Thee. Amen.
